    We have placed the order for the fittings with the machine shop and they should be ready about the same time the Shotgun pumps are starting to ship. :naughty:

    Upshifting is the weak point (bog and/or low advance) everywhere track and street included. So the problem is not limited to drag strips.

    I'm sure we'd just love more details...fueling, parts bought, etc in full detail in the meantime until the intake adapters become something you'll sell.

    A few points.. -The heat shrink is PTFE, commonly used for it's chemical resistance and in applications where high purity is required. IMO, even if there were a film on any of the components (that doesn't appear to be the case), that would be sooooo minimal I can't see it accounting for any real discrepancy and certainly not long term. -When your tank is anything other than full...your float wires at the top hat on both sides are no longer submerged but are only getting potentially splashed with fuel. I can't tell you for sure if the float body is sealed...I'd need to investigate that. -In my bench testing, I was curious if people may have been wrapping their float wires around the pumps power wires. I literally took the float wires while running a stage 2 assembly at 100% duty cycle (13.5V and pulling 21amps) and wrapped them around the power wires, fuel fitting, and pump. There was no change in the resistance the float was reporting. -I thought I remembered Musc putting a stock pump back in and still having the issue with his fuel gauge? In addition didn't 335i say theirs was on a bone stock LPFP? There doesn't seem to be any strong correlation. Thus far I have been unable to reproduce this and I have probably had more pump assemblies and different configurations in and out of that tank than anybody as well as multiple float assemblies on both sides of the tank. However I usually run without a stock regulator (more on that later). In addition as far as EMI from the pump goes...not only was I running one 450 pump....I've run two in a stock bucket for Stage 3 testing with an otherwise stock tank and LPFP plumbing. Second with the inline setup the stock pump remains in the bucket and the 255 pump should be on the opposite side of the float assembly. Has anyone unplugged either float assembly (especially the drivers side) and filled their tank or driven around like that? I'd be curious to know its affect. I currently have parts of my car disassembled for development...but will put it back together Wednesday and perform this test. Another thought as I'm running through the entire tank assembly in my I said on my car I usually run without the drivers side regulator but I put a stock one back in for Stage 3 testing. The stock float assembly on the driver's side connects to that regulator. I haven't noticed a difference with it in place or removed but I'm sure that wire is to ground the metal component of that regulator to dissipate any charge that may build up from fuel flowing through it. There is no such grounding that takes place on the driver's side of the E series. HOWEVER, if you look at the F-series pumps...the ground wire on the pump motor has 2 additional leads on it. One that connects to the regulator and one that connects to the filter as they are both contained in the same assembly but are separate unlike the E series. I need to check something and report back, but I'm wondering if the body of the 255 pump is grounded. I've read about a charge build up in fuel and if that pump body isn't grounded with all that fuel flowing through it...what the affect is when it reaches the regulator that is attached to the float assembly???? Just brainstorming at this point. Anybody have an o-scope to put on their float sensor. :naughty:

    Interestingly enough, on their own page - they have numbers that simply don't add up. Another weird thing is that they quote "BMW Factory Rated Horsepower/Torque" on their charts - almost as if they are claiming they didn't run a baseline? The only thing I can think of other than this is the following numbers are accurate differences from the baseline, but chose to use the stock numbers to fluff up the product? Max HP Gain 42 @ 6000 RPM Max Torque Gain 47 @ 3500 RPM Peak Horsepower 516 @ 6000 RPM Peak Torque 489 @ 3500 RPM Stock HP 425 Stock Torque 406 425HP + 42HP = 467HP (stock + their claimed gain) 516HP - 42HP = 474HP (their claimed peak HP - their claimed gain) 406 + 47 = 453 TQ (stock + their claimed gain) 489 - 47 = 442 TQ (their claimed peak TQ - their claimed gain) Doesn't make much sense to me.

    IMO, Bmw's are more track than drag oriented cars. Even the other platforms are getting high HP's easier and cheaper, I just love how my bmw feels & performs on a curved track still being a daily driver.

    Roger that. OK i've bitched enough about this, i'm gunna go in tomorrow and see what happens. If I fail, herp derp. Think MD gives you a 120 day grace period to get your stuff in line so it's not a big deal. The "fines" are like $15 bucks every month or something silly anyways :P Thanks for the input man.

    Jury is out on that one for the long run. I'd make a guess, but seeing as I've never used a sim I don't think it would be a good one. The drive cycle is a pita, look it up before you go in. My suggestion would be just take it out (SIM not tune, I went in on E70 lol) and scan with inpa or anything to check monitors.

    Thanks man. There's some context I should add: The car has ONLY thrown an SES when it accompanied a mixture and lean code. I'm starting to think that's from the DP fix being set overly strong, though my understanding of how it biases the secondaries is rudimentary. Outside of what appears to be a DP fix-caused mixture issue, the car doesn't throw any SES/CEL for those bizarre O2 heater codes. So i'm planning on resetting lambda and fuel via BT cable tonight, then giving it a go tomorrow on a weaker DP fix setting. I figure it can't hurt to have the DP fix in...right?

    Yeah you should be fine if you get a good drive cycle, with the cat codes disabled you'll only have not ready for catalyst. The O2, O2 heater, evap, etc etc will all be ready. I passed this way with Cobb back in the day and with the bt loaded tunes. When I was targeting lean at idle it was preventing the O2 sensors to get readiness, but I fixed that and passed, but that's not really applicable to you. It looks like this You won't have diagnostic trouble codes since they are disabled :-)

    I'm tired of watching Texas suck so here are my thoughts on the Pats game. I'll get around to some of the other ones in a bit, saw cutups of most of the GB DET game at this point. 1. I need to make a broader post on this because it's really starting to piss me off, but NE needs to fundamentally re-evaluate how they scout, draft, and develop field-side WRs. As I understand it (could be wrong) they really micro-target at that position. They want a very, very specific skill set to fit neatly within the framework of what NE "does". Which is nice...but you end up passing on really talented kids for whatever reason. Here's the bottom line, NE has failed to develop a WR since Julian Edelman. Dobson has a ton of traits you love, if he doesn't pan out whoever they have vetting the outside guys needs to take a hike. 2. Building off of that point, NE truly lacks a vertical presence to the offense. Julian has an outstanding release and carries the vertical portion better than you'd think, but he's 5.01. KT just not that good, not coordinated enough. Amendola a $3mm decoy. Gronk right now is laboring a bit, he won't be healthy for another month easy. They need to find Tim Wright the ball more. Dobson has to play, period. 3. I'm not a coach but sometimes McDaniels outsmarts himself. NE ALWAYS goes tempo inside-draw concepts when they get a chunk pass play into the red area. Every defense keys on it, see the below from the 32nd rated run D in football. That is 2 frames after the snap, ball is not even in Tom's hands yet and both A gaps are totally sugared. 4. Didn't love the effort from Revis in the first half. He didn't give up anything over 19 yards, and even then it was all comebacks and digs. Regardless, a player of his caliber shouldn't be beaten so handily on those types of routes. I will say this - sometimes Revis coasts a bit. Many, many corners are guilty of this. I guess if 24 is your biggest issue, you are in good shape. 5. Marcel Reese is so damn good. Easily the finest fullback in the game. I could go on for ages about how under-rated he is. 6. Charles Woodson still shows good range from that center field spot. I hadn't watched him much since about 2011 or so, and then it was as a student so I was just watching casually. He absolutely baited Tom on a late crosser, was so close to an INT. 7. Dont'a Hightower is finally being used to his strengths, and no surprise he looks outstanding. NE has an odd habit of dropping their athletes into zones, I think that's just BB being arrogant but who knows. Either way, they're finally letting him play on the end of the line and play upfield. Power hands, sand in his pants to anchor, good bend for a 270+ pound dude, varies his rushes....a lot to like about his development. 8. All this shuffling on the O-line is a serious issue. I mean really, it's the first and foremost issue. I preferred Cannon as a guard from afar, but watching him closely it's clear why most people around the league preferred him on the wing. He lacks awareness and twitch to play inside, tackles consistently cross his face and he can't handle a good swim move. Below is him getting worked by Antonio Smith on a would-be touchdown run.
